A New York jury ruled Wednesday to force Ryan Leslie to pay the $1 million reward to Armin Augstein, an auto shop owner who found the computer while walking his dog in Pulheim, Germany, and turned it over to police in November 2010, the New York Post reported Thursday.

Leslie had accused Augstein of being involved in the theft, which took place in Cologne, about 15 miles from Augstein's hometown.

"I'm very happy ... that the American judicial system, which is so totally different from ours, functioned so well with a jury that are not professionals and are laymen," Augstein said in German through lawyer Steven Thal.

Leslie said he may consider an appeal.
